Cedar Crest Apartments
Ceadr Rapids, Iowa
Cedar Crest Apartments is a 45-unit senior housing project located on a former farmstead in Cedar Rapids, IA. The plan solution was derived as a response to the contours of the site, the location of the existing farm house, and the scale of the surrounding residential neighborhood. The three-story building tucks into the contours of the site, reducing the perceived building height where it’s in closest proximity to its residential neighbors and providing at-grade access to the lower level parking. The project converts the existing farmhouse to community space for the residents and establishes the language for the building’s architectural image. The Cedar Crest Apartments meet Iowa Green Street criteria for sustainable design.
